The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engined, two-seated sports car, designed and developed by the Volkswagen Group as the successor to the Bugatti Veyron. The Chiron was first revealed at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1st, 2016.
The car is named in honor of the Monegasque driver, Louis Chiron.
The main carryover piece will be the 8 litre W16 quad-turbocharged engine, though it is heavily updated. Direct injection will be added and two of the four turbos will be electronically driven to eliminate turbo lag. Chiron has 1,103 kW (1,479 bhp) of power and 1,600 N·m (1,180 lb·ft) of torque starting from 2000 rpm. Like its predecessor Veyron, it has a carbon fibre body structure, independent suspension and 4WD system. The Chiron will accelerate from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 2.5 seconds, 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in under 6.5 seconds and 0-300 km/h (186 mph) in under 13.6 seconds. The Chiron's top speed is electronically limited to 420 km/h (261 mph) for safety reasons. The anticipated full top speed of the Bugatti Chiron is believed to be around 463 km/h (288 mph). At full speed the 100 liter fuel tank would be empty in 8 minutes, that is 190 l/100 km or 4.5 kg CO2/km. 500 units are to be produced and 170 orders have already been placed. The Chiron will be available towards the end of 2016 with a cost of €2.4 million (circa £1.9 million, or $2.66 million US).
